Downloadable PS3 title PAIN will be retrofitted with Trophies on 4th September, according to the Sony blog.

That's also the day that you will be able to buy the new Amusement Park level, although we'll have to wait and see whether the European release date tallies with the US one.

The inevitable question about Trophies is whether they are retroactive. "Most of the trophy requirements are new so we haven't tracked your progress until now," producer Travis Williams said in response, implying that developer Idol Minds has come up with unique goals. "Some work you will get credit for."

If you're a PAIN fan and want to know what you will be aiming for, head over to the PAIN Trophies blog-post and scroll down.

And, in case if you've been living under a collapsed skyscraper with a ragdoll nurse for the last few months, Trophies are PlayStation 3's answer to Xbox Live Achievements, rewarding your accomplishments with shiny prizes.

One day you'll be able to display Trophies in your PlayStation Home abode, and in the meantime you can compare your skills with other people on your friends' list. Early supporters include Super Stardust HD, PixelJunk Eden, Uncharted: Drake's Fortune and Buzz! Quiz TV.
